    Every state has its own rules. Many use a book value to calculate the state sales or excise tax. Its too easy to present a fake receipt to minimize the sales tax at the MVA office so they use book value - at least up to a certain age, like 10 years or value. There are other fees that vary from state to state with no two states the same.

    Every state MVA or DOT office has a website that explains the costs.
